    Tired of broken yokes.

    I bought the slash 5803. Not the vxl and ever since I put the velineon I brake things now and then. Today it was the Rear stub axels, last week it was the Output yokes. Now I'm looking and comparing the exploded views of the parts and I see the output yokes , stub axels and half shafts are different . Well I'm going to be replacing them ,,,,,,, will they fit? I see the Diff is the same so my guess is yes. I'm using 2s so I don't know why this happens. 23 90 gearing , tight slipper clutch.

    the rear axles the slash comes with are pretty small, i just changed mine this weekend to the 4wd axles, they are much thicker and they slid right in. if you want to spend the cash i have seen hardend steel output yolks

    4x4 axles work very nicely, and last a lot longer. Loosening the slipper makes everything last a lot longer. It's there to protect the driveline.

    I know wheelies are cool and all but seriously you need to use the slipper clutch. It's there to protect the transmission and drivetrain.

    I have tryed every axle combo even steel yokes and I loosened slipper and still mananged to break the axles even snapping the HD 4x4 slash axles in half. Also broke a set of integy steel cvd axles. The only remedy for me was MIP heavy duty axles but even then you need the mip pin kit because they were out fast.

    The 4 x4 axles are no better than the Standard ones. The center section on both are the same and both break in the same way. Thanks traxxas.

    Most failures are from the output yoke or stub axle and both of those are beefed up on the 4x4 shafts so IMO Traxxas did improve the axle set up and do deserve an honest thanks rather than a sarcastic one.

    @dadx2mj ,
    Yeah so if I upgrade to 4x4 parts , I would have to start from the output yokes on out right? Because the ball thingy won't fit I figured.

    The 4x4 shafts come as a complete set from the yoke to the stub axle just go with that and you should be good to go

    Has nothing to do with this being the Traxxas forum it is a simple fact nothing more. The yokes and stub axles are beefier than the 2wd version.

    This is a funny thread. All hail the thread!!

    Seriously though, if you compare the HD setup (4x4) they are much beefier than the stock 2wd axles. And the HD shafts will not fit on the steel output drives as I found out this past week...
